$15.2 million for NBN education programs

Wednesday, 04 July, 2012

The federal government will provide $15.2 million to 36 communities across Australia to help establish local NBN training services, as part of its Digital Hubs and Digital Enterprises program.

Stephen Conroy, Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE), announced the funding earlier today.

Conroy said the programs “will help local communities take advantage of the NBN”.

“Residents and businesses in these communities will learn about the opportunities and benefits of fast, affordable and reliable broadband, as well as get training and advice about how they can use the NBN,” he said.

According to Conroy’s department, the programs will help residents in the selected areas “understand the opportunities created … the NBN” and “improve their online and digital literacy skills”.

The department also said the programs will help small businesses and not-for-profit organisations develop their online presence.

The full list of the selected communities is available at the DBCDE website.
